give a tax credit to any one who would turn in what lawmakers are calling an assault weapon and also another measure aimed at creating the overall bigger picture of mass violence. >> at the news conference the president accused republicans of trying to collect a ransom in exchange for not crashing the u.s. economy. they are demanding more spending cuts before they agree to raise the nation's debt ceiling. the debt ceiling is announcing the amount of money the states can borrow. today the president responded to some republicans who say they are willing to shut down the government if the president doesn't back down. ultimately congress makes decisions about whether or not we spend money and keep the government open. if they decide they want to shut down the government in order to get their way they have the votes in the house of representatives to do that. i think that would be a mistake. >> john boehner responded the american people do not support raising the debt ceiling without reducing government spending statement. wendell, a government shut down, is that something that really mig

. >> jared, is there a realistic prospect for something that could respectably be called tax reform or is that simply an exercise to raise a little bit more revenue? >> more of the latter than the former in my humble opinion. it's great they're all getting along today as hampton was telling us, but the idea of very deep tax reform seems pretty difficult given the disagreements up there. on the other hand, you were mentioning this earlier and i agree, the deal will involve both revenues, probably from the tax expenditure side, and spending cuts, and as has been said, the president has significant spending cuts on the table. >> corporate tax reform? >> possibly, but i'm not sure -- that again is going to be lower rate, broader base. i don't know if that's real massive tax reform. >> a second coming out for the obama daughters who have grown up before our eyes. >> people say that the president looks older. those girls look older than they did four years ago, and they, of course, have grown up in the bubble of the white house. >> in percentage terms they've gotten older than he has. >>
jersey and connecticut, these three states pay almost 16% of the taxes collected in the united states of america. >> some house conservatives favored amendment offered by south carolina mick mulvaney to pay for $17 billion in disaster relief cutting discretionary spending across the board by 1.63%. >> it's important to me that the money goes to the folks who need it very badly. it's so important to me,be that i think we should pay for it. >> the amendment failed. key new york democrat says paying for disaster relief cutting elsewhere would be a first. sandy victims should get their aid. >> i wantbe to repeat this point again. united states of america we respond to disasters. all americans respond to disasters. we don't ask for off-sets. >> with the nation's debt at $16 trillion and counting, conservatives say it isn't about bashing the northeast. it is about saving the country. >> we have to get this under control. most conservatives believe we have to come to a point where we stand and fight. i hope this is the time. >> after president obama said it would be irresponsible and absurd
tax reform. but what he's not willing to negotiate and he should not noer negotiate is over whether the congress pays for the bills. the congress is saying if we don't make the changes the way they want to, they're threatening to tank the united states economy. again, the debt ceiling, it is really important that people understand, this is not about expanding your capacity to start new government programs. this is paying for bill that is are already due and owing so not paying it would be like, tamron, you and i buying stuff on the credit card and then deciding after we bought that stuff we are not going to pay for it. if the united states does that, it will tank our credit rating and economy and make any discussion of what would happen going over the fiscal cliff look like child's play. that's why the president said, look, he is not going to allow the american economy to be held hostage in that way. he is absolutely prepared to continue to negotiate ways to reduce our budget deficit and that's exactly what we should be doing but we shouldn't be doing it under the threat, the republ
this in a series in "the huffington post," we showed in the debate on taxes, it will take a more publicly confrontational approach to the republicans. he says you treat me like this, i'll treat you like this, go ahead, make my day. i think you will see on gun control, debt ceiling, on everything down the road, public pressure from the president rather than wasting his time on events that the republicans don't even want to come to at the white house. >> yeah, howard, my experience in the senate in the '80s and '90s, was simply that, the big difference was opponents treated each other much more respectfully, they did oppose what they were trying to do. but they didn't try to use tricky tactics. they were very open, honest about it. they let each other know well ahead of time. they didn't try to block every maneuver in parliamentary terms. but on anything important, i never saw anybody get a vote out of friendship or socializing snow yeah, i think that is right, i think there were times back then when somebody was >>> does gop mean guns over people? let's play "hardball." ♪ >>> go
thing to vote against it when you're squandering a bill clinton surplus on tax cuts for those who don't need tax cuts pre-2008. it is another thing when you're trying to climb out of a recession. >> that's exactly right. there is a lot of misunderstanding about the debt ceiling. most americans think the debt ceiling is congress giving itself permission to spend more money. when they understand it is about do we default on our bills they say what? you're not going to pay your bills? that's what the debt ceiling is about. one of the things i advocated was the restoration of the gephardt rule that said when congress voted for a budget, let's say it voted for the iraq war that cost a trillion dollars, then at the moment that they voted for that program the debt ceiling would be adjusted up or down to reflect the budget they just voted for. that's what most americans would do. so this debt ceiling is all about hypocrisy. it is all about pretending that we have an option about paying our bills. by the way, a lot of the bills we have to pay are things i was adamantly opposed to. i didn't wan
% of gdp, that we've got to fight to cut taxes, that we've got to fight to cut corporate tax rates, we've got to inform entitlements, we've got to do these things i think conservatives are best suited to do, instead of being engaged on fights on the periphery. we've got to narrow our focus and get back to first principles, and if we don't do that, the republican party's going to be in the minority for a very long time. >> joe scarborough from "morning joe," i like "afternoon joe" too. thank you very much. >> i like your time slot a lot better than ours, actually. 1:00's okay. >> try it some time, sleep in a bit. >> i'd like to. >>> coming up next, the gun lobby reacts to the president's proposals and that nra ad. >>> plus, biden, bloomberg, and gabby giffords. there's a trio inside "time's" special edition on gun control. this is "andrea mitchell reports" only on msnbc. i'm up next, but now i'm singing the heartburn blues. hold on, prilosec isn't for fast relief. cue up alka-seltzer. it stops heartburn fast. ♪ oh what a relief it is! maybe you want to incorporate a business. or prote

taxes. 90% agree with him, for example, on universal background checks on the purchase of a weapon. it's very different from what happened with george bush when he won a very narrow victory in 2004 and then said he had a mandate and decided he had a mandate to privatize social security, which was deeply unpopular. the great strength of the president here is he knows what he wants to do, he's very focused, and he has the country with him. some of this stuff is going to be tough to get through congress and you may have to fight it in the midterms and beyond, but he's going to make real progress, i think, because of what he believes and because he's got the country with him. >> well, these are kind of fundamental issues for a president, guns and keeping the government going and fighting for his foreign policy team. it's not like he's looked for a fight. let's face it, newtown forced everybody to deal with this. >> newtown has changed everything. >> i don't think he's looking for a fight. i think he's found one. >> i agree with you. i think since the election this has been the best period

taxes sapped growth when you're starving for growth? >> reporter: yeah. and christine lagard, the former french finance minister is here. she and others said, yes, it's gone too far. it is stunted growth. while cutting debt, while cutting expenses, it has had the opposite infect. rather than creating growth and creating an environment for businesses to invest because they think governments are being responsible, things have slowed down so much there's been so much unemployment, 11.6% in the euro zone than it's having the opposite effect. we have to find a more dalan ba approach to how we go forward. europe has a disproportionate influence of this conversation. there is a conversation particularly vis-a-vis the united states as to how much is too much and how much austerity, how much in terms of cutting back is actually enough, christine? >> really nice to see you. when you run into indiana jones, he can have his hat back. nice to see you. >> how many bars are there over the world that have pictures of you in them? >> no, i turned 28 at a davos -- last year -- and it was one of the best b

and actually to get from where we are, given the spending cuts and tax increases that we've implemented so far, to where we need to be to stabilize the debt, is not that heavy a lift if we had a functional politics that was actually paying attention to what needs to be done instead of creating these ridiculous self-inflicted skirmishes and wounds. as you have correctly pointed out, you have even got conservatives spokespeople saying, look, this isn't going to happen, you're not going to do this. we're going to have one of these last minute solutions again. if that is truly the case and if history is precedent, it will be, we really have to ask ourselves about our priorities. >> and yet, david, the problem is the fitch ratings agency has already threatened a ratings downgrade. and it even has a retort who think debt ceiling hostage taking can be a weapon against spending calling it an infective and potentially dangerous mechanism for enforcing fiscal discipline. so what is this obsession they have of falling on their sword and taking the country with them. >> there you go again, martin, stickin
